On Saturday Ronda visited the home of Nelson Mandela to pay a personal tribute and to represent Knit-a-Square.


Wendy and her daughter Sarah arrived on Sunday as The Salvation Army band was playing the South African national anthem which everyone was bellowing out through fits of tears!

Here is our first pictorial tribute to Madiba on the day of his Memorial Service which will be attended by leaders from across the globe.

Above are the flowers and note placed outside Madiba's home by Ronda. Below are two photographs taken outside Ronda's house
